The Bhagavad Gita

I first time I read The Bhagavad Gita was in university. Although interesting, my interpretation was very academic, somewhat clinical like an anthropological exercise. Not surprising, being as I was an archaeology major looking for a humanities credit. Needless to say, I got very little personally out of the readings.

It's been a few years and my outlook has changed. Although the material is the same, this time when I read through The Bhagavad Gita, I became very interested in the concept of the path of action. Several things clicked into place for me. Like many, I tended to associate isolation and spiritual commitment as part of the same equation. Yet, in my own life, I have found that I feel most like my true self (closest to being part of that big picture) when I am going about my day to day activities fully engaged.

It's truly amazing that works created so very long ago can have such a profound meaning even now. I guess, certain concepts and lines of questioning never really go out of style. And I've only just now broken the surface of my explorations of this work.
